My friend Laike (Christofer Ståhle) has a new album, "Fang and Det Senaste" (Trapped in the Latest) - 2014 (Vinyl LP 180g Die-Cut Cover, Monterey Discos DM-004,  500 copies edition).

As before, all 12 songs are very different. Very catchy melodies, excellent arrangements and a rich selection of instruments are dominant impressions on first hearing. 
For fans of Lisa O Piu (Lisa Isaksson, David Svedmyr) plays a lot of instruments. Album contains music with very nice touch of psychedelic music from early '70. 

And If it is hard to me to choose one in particular, at this time I like the most:
A3 Frånvarons Tid (The Age of abscence) and A6 Fang and Det Senaste (Trapped In The News), 
B4 Om Jag Fel Har (If I 'm Wrong) and the last song B6 Djurens Hämnd (The Revenge Of The Animals).

Highly Recommended!!!!
